Subject: Interesting mashup
This piece combines two comic styles: the pantomime of Henry, a well-known newsprint character who was depicted in the funny papers with no mouth, a sort of India ink Harpo Marx; and the well-known vaudeville-flavored vocal stylings of Betty Boop. Only the Fleischers could pull something like this off, certainly Disney couldn't have in those days.
